Soufriere Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Soufriere

October 21, 2017 Trinity Boughner

Soufriere's backdrop of the Pitons, sea and rainforest provides a picture perfect setting for a visit to this laid-back and relatively undeveloped town in the south of St. Lucia. Considering that its name is French for "sulphur," it should be no surprise to discover the wealth of hot springs and mineral baths. Other great spots to visit include Diamond Botanical Gardens, a slew of pretty beaches and the bike trails that wind through sugar plantation Anse Mamin. Rent a car to see the town.

The Mango Tree

Mango Tree Restaurant, like the resort itself is tropically elegant. The al fresco dining pavilion looks out over a small river stone pool and takes in the magnificent Petit Piton and views of the Caribbean Sea. Stonefield Estate Resort features 3 exciting menus,rotated each day.Our chef and his culinary team use all fresh local market ingredients to make the freshest, most delicious St Lucian flare. All herbs and vegetables grown on property are organic and the former plantation still yields the seasonal citrus, mango and breadfruit which are incorporated into the daily menus. The Mango Tree Restaurant features a special vegan menu, as well as a children’s menu. And to stir it up true Caribbean style, The Mango Tree presents a rotating dinner theme menu featuring the popular Barbecue Thursdays, a charming Creole evening with a live local shak shak band and the best baby back ribs and jerk bake on the west coast. The Saturday Market Affair serves up the best of what has been freshly procured at the nearby Soufriere market with live entertainment from local musicians. Whether you dine under a full moon with Petit Piton cast in shadow, under the starriest of nights, or witness passing ships alight, The Mango Tree Restaurants brings diners the perfect marriage of location and gourmet Creole. The Mango Tree is open for breakfast from 7.30 am until 11:00 am and is open for lunch and dinner until 10:00 pm. Plantation House, the large signature villa on property features a full kitchen and the option for an in house chef for your stay.

I wouldn't travel here, the views are really great, but the food is average and we didn't have great meals.
The pricing is perfect, but overall the food was average

We probably wouldn't have turned up this narrow, uphill drive to find this colorful establishment with a spectacular vista of the Pitons on our own, so, very glad the the agency knew of it for us!
They had an abundant, all you cared to eat, lunch buffet of local, authentically prepared foods that were delicious!
Be aware, there are numerous steps and multiple levels to negotiate.

Martha's Tables

Reviewed By Thefurrybritches - Winnipeg, Canada

Martha’s is a small, clean, welcoming daytime meal stop. Well worth the 5 minute drive off the highway out of Soufriere south. Martha herself came out to see that we were enjoying our lunch. We both had the spicy creole mahi mahi which came with a variety of traditional West Indies sides. Everything was hot, delicious and fresh. It was far better than any of the “authentic Caribbean” fare at the resort restaurants we sampled during our week in the area. Very reasonable price for good sized portions plus friendly prompt service. As an added bonus you can, inside of 5 minutes, go down the road to Malgretoute beach which was nice and quite secluded - although I expect once the massive resort they are building there is open you won’t get that part of the experience anymore.

Humming Bird

Reviewed By JoanneOntheRoad77 - Clinton Township, Michigan

The Best food and dining experience we had in St. Lucia!!! We visited Marigot Bay after being in Soufriere for a few days, and we totally missed the Hummingbird Restaurant... Chef David's food is marvelous! He uses fresh seafood and fresh organic veggies/herbs from their own garden for these excellent creations. All the seafood dishes we had were wonderful, and the Vegetable Roti was superb!! Loved the Chicken Arawak(?) too. For dessert, the Sticky Toffee is a must!! The staff is friendly and helpful, and we loved our experiences here. Great Hospitality!! And they even use fresh fruit or fruit juice in their cocktails! We totally want to return!!! We enjoyed our stay at the Hummingbird Beach Resort, too, and highly recommend it. Besides having wonderful views, it's a big plus that it is family owned and operated.

Purity Bakery

Reviewed By Solfulwmn - Palo Alto, California

My kids and I attempted to buy pastries mid-afternoon, but everything was sold out. Today we stopped by after our trip to the market. There was a variety of pastries and breads to choose from at 12 noon. The woman assisting us was not friendly ( she had the same attitude towards me at Deja Vu) therefore I can only assume that she is not fond of tourists, but the coconut cake was very good...not too sweet. The bakery is worth a visit if you are in town mid-morning.

Bamboo Restaurant

The Bamboo Restaurant at Fond Doux Plantation & Resort in St. Lucia offers up sumptuous Caribbean and international cuisine in beautiful, tropical environs. The restaurant offers a la carte lunch and dinner dining. Set amidst the lush Gardens of the resort, diners can enjoy the truly magical ambiance of a tropical setting.

Reviewed By Johan17 - Haarlem, The Netherlands

The Bamboo restaurant offers open air (but covered) dining. During our four day (3 nights) stay we had lunch two times and dinner three times.
For our first lunch we had to wait rather a long time before being served (we were not early or so). The lunch was ok, the sweet potato soup and the veggie burger average. The rotie chicken was very good. For our second lunch we skipped the starters and just had chicken and fish rotie, which were fine. Overall I would rate lunch between 3 and 4 out of 5.
Dinner was better. as a starter our favourite was the signature Octopus Sous Kaye, the mains were very good, I had the plantation steak twice and lamb rack once, all very nice. My wife had the grilled lamb rack, bamboo grilled chicken and grilled shrimp, also very nice. The mains would benefit from being served hot. My impression was that the starters and the mains had been prepared at the same time. So for our last dinner we did not take starters.
We had only one dessert at our last dinner, a creme brulee, which was very nice.
For drinks I would recommend taking wine by the glass, I liked the Cab Sauvignon best. The prices of the cocktails I find too steep (twice the price of a glass of wine).

Ate at the GREAT ROOM at sugar Beach. Amazing. The service, the food, the wine list (Go French ... better value). The view was perfect. I had the cod. Strange that there was a New England fish in the lower carribean. It was perfect. The gnoochi was amazing and they bring out so many complementary foods you really dont need an app. The service was attentive but not pushy. Really, one of the best dinners I have ever had.

Boucan Restaurant & Bar by Hotel Chocolat

Perched high up between the Piton Mountains, The Boucan Restaraunt is open to both residents and non residents. Boucan is The Hotel Chocolat’s own restaurant, where guests can experience Cacao Cuisine. The word “Boucan” refers to the traditional West Indian name for a cocoa drying facility. The restaurant is built on the site of the Rabot Estate’s original Boucan. Boucan is also linked to “boucaneer” or “buccaneer,” the local pirates that would smoke and dry their food to preserve it for long trips at sea. The Boucan offers a strong connection with cacao and chocolate. For over 3,000 years, cacao has been used as a savory ingredient and for 500 as a sweet ingredient. The menu explores both, with the chefs taking their inspiration from the fresh cacao growing all around the estate, together with amazing local fish and seafood, salad leaves, vegetables and plentiful fruit. However the cuisine is far from cocoa heavy. The menu often makes use of cacao as a light, subtle spice or as an infusion. The desserts make full and imaginative use of the estate cacao, with each evening meal rounded off with the day’s new chocolate creation. Boucan’s breathtaking minimalist design includes a soaring roof inspired by the shape of the cacao tree, with its branches reaching to the sky, and shaded by the lush rainforest canopy. Its high platform is a centre stage for the Big Nature views all around.Dining at the Hotel Chocolat&apos;s Boucan Restaurant, whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner or the fabulous sundowner cocktails, is an experience to be shared and cherished.We passionately believe we are certainly offering something very different at Boucan. The dress code is smart/casual and ladies a cocktail dress is never out of place!

We enjoyed this lovely little restaurant that one of our taxi drivers from Lynel’s taxi recommended we try. We ate there a few times and always found the food good and reasonably priced. We particularly enjoyed watching the boats coming and going, the pier activity, the sea birds and rainbows while enjoying our food. Service was also great.
